    It's a baby Okapi ! An okapi is a short-necked relative of the giraffe whose hind legs look very similar to that of a zebra's. The stripes are a very dominant feature and no two have the same stripe pattern, so the little ones can distinguish the mom from a distance. They have long tongues like the #wild animals| http://wildanimalcollections130.blogspot.com

okapi - 1 of my all time favorite wild animals - I would spend lots of time watching them @ the Wild Animal Park - ask my children!

The Okapi, Okapia johnstoni, forest Giraffe is a giraffid artiodactyl mammal native to the Ituri Rainforest, located in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in Africa. Although the okapi bears striped markings reminiscent of zebras, it is most closely related to the giraffe. The animal was brought to prominent European attention by speculation on its existence found in popular press reports covering Henry Morton Stanley's journeys in 1887. Today, about 10,000–20,000 remain in the wild

rare "forest giraffe" baby. baby got back!

The Malayan tapir, also called the Asian tapir, is the largest of the four species of tapir and the only one native to Asia. it appears to be a cross between a pig and an anteater. Tapirs, found in the jungles of South and Central America are actually mammals and are more closely related to horses and rhinos!

Following a devastating blow to Okapi conservation efforts this summer, a ray of hope arrived for this threatened species:  a healthy Okapi calf was born on September 15 at the Antwerp Zoo.

This picture made me cry. The momma looks so proud and happy with her baby. Like "see see!" ahhh cuteness

Okapi feeding by Klaus Gierden ~ Although well known to Egyptians in ancient times, and to pygmies since prehistory, the Okapi’s existence was only confirmed and accepted by western science in the 20th century. At first, scientists thought it was some kind of forest dwelling zebra, but now it is known to be the closest and only living relative to the giraffe! ~ Miks' Pics "Animals lll" board @ www.pinterest.com...
